7:00 - 9:30 pm

We will be offering an evening of great food and great conversation. Based upon the “salon” model from previous centuries, a “salon” is a gathering of people under the guidance of an inspiring host, held partly to entertain one another and partly to increase the knowledge of the participants through conversation, but always rooted in the visual and performing arts. There are four different salons you can participate in this year with widely varying topics and locations. Dinner or heavy hors d’oeuvres are included in the price of the ticket and a robust evening of entertainment and conversation is guaranteed.
